State fragility is increasingly seen as a key driver of extreme poverty, and of the mass migration, terrorism, and trafficking that has sparked global insecurity in an increasingly interconnected and interdependent world. Building on previous work developed by the Commission on State Fragility, Growth and Development, Reducing State Fragilities rethinks approaches to state fragility at both global and national levels.
The Council on State Fragility, composed of eminent world leaders, provides strategic and policy leadership to the Reducing State Fragilities initiative.
Reducing State Fragilities also supports the DFI Fragility Forum, a forum of almost 30 development finance institutions working collaboratively to increase the effectiveness of their operations and investments in fragile contexts. Additionally, Reducing State Fragilities will provide support at the national level to governments of states undergoing pivotal moments where international assistance may support a transition out of fragility.
Reducing State Fragilities is funded by DFID and The Rockefeller Foundation.
